AFTER grooming Anton and Glenton Wolfe, and seeing them develop and grow into national team material, National Quarries North East Stars have lost the Wolfe brothers to “big guns” CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh.
“Our club is not structured around the business aspect of it, as much as it is concentrated around the community aspect, we want to ensure the players from our district are seen at highest level of the game in the country,” Mahabir said. “I am not going to hinder any player’s progress, I have no problem with Anton and Glenton Wolfe moving to Jabloteh. However, one thing has been proved, North East Stars continues to produce players of a high quality, that can play at the international level,” said Mahabir. North East Stars are coming off a bit of a rough season, having played last season without winning a title and failed to successfully defend both the League and FA Cup titles.
The Sangre Grande club lost their backbone of players last season when Carey Harris, Kayode Mc Innon, Abassi Mc Pherson, Wilfrod Joseph and Davidson Neptune were all terminated. Nevertheless, looking ahead to the upcoming season Mahabir said it’s all about rebuilding, “While the Wolfe brothers were an integral part of the club, since the inception in 2002, we had them last season and it was not a great season for us, so in 2006 the focus will be on rebuilding and development.” “We will continue to look at all players from our district and our attention will be on the growth and development of our young players. I assure you just as we created Anton and Glenton Wolfe, we will create more players capable of international standards,” Mahabir said.
